Pictures on the Wall

I believe in visualization leading to manifestation.

I know its sickeningly new age and probably breaks a number of Roman Catholic laws.  I can’t ignore my present life playing out exactly how I imagined it all those years ago.  My parents called this “Lisey Land,” my sixth-grade teacher called it ADD, a taxi cab driver from Brooklyn called it “psychic tendencies.”  Nonetheless, I love and hate my ability to get lost in my imagination. Today, as I look back on the last handful of years here in New York, I know this old habit of mine has been a bit dormant.  Perhaps I’ve been busy trying to “corporate-ify” myself… forcing myself to only pay attention to the calculated path.  The truth is, I’ve never worked well with a plan – and somehow my life seems to work best the less I try.
